As a global elite practice, Allen & Overy is at the cutting edge of international legal and commercial insights. Our teams are often advising on market developments and 'firsts' around the world. In addition to this first-hand experience, we have established a 'Global Intelligence Unit' to track trends and emerging legal and commercial issues and analyse what they mean for our clients.

We are committed to offering our clients in the Australian market the expertise of our international knowledge platform and impressive global office network.
